Ecological sustainability : what role for public health education?
Fleming, Mary-Lou, Tenkate, Thomas D., & Gould, Trish (2009) Ecological sustainability : what role for public health education? International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, 6, pp. 2028-2040.
This article explores the notion of ecological sustainability in the context of public health education and the contribution Universities can make in creating environments that include ecologically sustainable practices. It considers the important role of environmental health in building a sustainable future for the population as a central plank of public health. It presents the evidence for the need for comprehensive approaches to ecological sustainability within the University and offers suggestions about how this can take place. It concludes by arguing that to date there is a substantial gap between the rhetoric and the reality in the University context.
